Napoli return to action after the World Cup break with an eight-point lead in Serie A and can pick up where they left off by beating Inter Milan.
The Nerazzurri are 11 points off the pace in fifth and have tended to come up short in big matches this term, even on home turf.
We reckon 39/20 for an away win is the way to go with our first Inter Milan vs Napoli prediction.
Inter Milan Odds
After finishing first and second in Italy’s top flight over the past two seasons, Inter do not look quite the same force this time around.
Their supporters will point to a strong record of six wins from seven Serie A home matches, but they have had a kind schedule here.
Torino in ninth are their highest-placed victims, followed by Bologna in 11th and Salernitana in 12th, with the other three down in the bottom four.
Roma left with all three points after a 2-1 victory, while AC Milan prevailed 3-2 at this venue when the designated hosts.
There have also been away defeats at Lazio and Juventus, while Bayern Munich beat Inter 2-0 twice in the Champions League.
Simone Inzaghi still has plenty of talent at his disposal, but also a few issues to deal with.
Leading scorer Lautaro Martinez was late back from Qatar 2022 due to celebrating Argentina’s triumph and Romelu Lukaku has been dogged by niggling injury problems.
Denzel Dumfries is being linked with a move to Chelsea and Milan Skriniar will be out of contract this summer.
Looking at the 15/4 for the visitors to prevail by any one-goal margin.
SSC Napoli Odds
Napoli enjoyed a sensational first part of the campaign, both on the domestic front and in Europe.
Following a couple of early draws, Gli Azzurri embarked on an incredible 13-match winning run, which included some memorable victories.
In the Champions League, Liverpool were thumped 4-1, while a 6-1 romp against Ajax in Amsterdam made everybody sit up and take notice.
A 2-0 defeat at Anfield finally ended the hot streak, but Napoli recovered to rattle off three more Serie A triumphs ahead of the World Cup lay-off.
Away wins over top-seven teams Lazio, AC Milan, Roma and Atalanta have given Luciano Spalletti a great platform from which to attack the restart.
This is a hungry outfit which was playing with great confidence and self-belief, so we’re hoping the break does not have an adverse effect.
Let’s add 19/2 for a 2-1 away win to our Inter Milan vs Napoli betting tips.
